I’ve had a complicated relationship with my mother for as long as I remember and made the decision years ago to more or less cut her out of my life. I thought if anything happened to her, I’d be okay, that it wouldn’t affect me.

But my mum died on Sunday.

And I’m not okay.

    Well emotions and bonds aren't that simple as it sometimes seems.

    Take my virtual hug and go get Ice Cream you will feel better after some time

    Heh, I had the same thing happen to me at the start of the year but with my father. Complicated relationship. Most of the time I felt like I hate him lately. But then my mom called one day that dad died and it broke me.

    Loss hurts, and it hurts deep and long. I felt empty for weeks despite not really seeing eye to eye with my father for long time... That being said, knowing that I will never see him again, and I completely lost my chance to possibly make thing better... It hurt. It got better with time and Im ok now, people die, It's just normal and I knew it back then, but only time heals everything...

    That being said, even over half a year later I miss him.

    Im sorry for your loss, it gets better. <3

    At least, you now can keep her in good memory with very low propability of her intervening.

    Take your time and mourn properly.

    @arcioneo Do you not feel it’s appropriate? I’m sensing sarcasm.

    Was away when mom died.
    Eventually learned what she was
    That hurt more than her dying

    I feel given how my dad pointed out things that didn't make sense that he's the one who cared even if he was a monster

    But who knows
    Never got to confront him before the real one died
